Liverpool are in advanced talks with Fulham over a possible return to Craven Cottage for Paul Konchesky, according to Sky Sports News.

The England international has dropped out of the picture at Anfield in recent weeks following the appointment of Kenny Dalglish as manager. The left-back was brought to Merseyside from Fulham in the summer by former Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson. He has endured a difficult time in trying to win over the Reds fans and he has not played since Dalglish replaced Hodgson earlier this month.

Fulham are now ready to offer Konchesky an escape route out of Anfield and a quick return to his former club by taking him on loan for the remainder of the season.

Mark Hughes is in the market for a new left-back with Mexican defender Carlos Salcido reportedly failing to settle to life in England.

A number of clubs are thought to have made enquiries to ask about Konchesky’s availability, but because he has already played for Fulham and Liverpool this season, the only club he can join during this month’s transfer window is the Cottagers due to FIFA regulations.

Fulham are now hoping to reach an agreement with Liverpool to sign Konchesky before the transfer window closes on Monday.
